Clinovo Selected to Present on ‘CDISC Implementation Strategies for Medical Devices’ at the CDISC Interchange Europe Conference 2014, on 7-11 April 2014, in Paris, France.

Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) April 09, 2014-President & CEO of Clinovo, Ale Gicqueau, was selected to present at the CDISC Interchange Europe 2014.

His presentation will focus on five strategies suited for medical device companies to effectively adopt CDISC Standards. “Clinovo has always been a strong proponent of adopting CDISC standards” states Ale. “We recently held a panel discussion on CDISC for medical device companies and our open source CDISC conversion tool ‘CDISC Express’ has been downloaded by over 1,000 companies across the globe.” In his presentation Ale will explain how to prioritize the different steps to implement CDISC Standards, from CDASH CRF designs to succeeding an FDA Submission in the SDTM format.

Clinovo’s presentation is part of the CDISC Interchange session on ‘Adoption and Evolution of CDISC Standards’, chaired by Mark Lambrecht from the SAS Institute. This session will feature a presentation on ‘The Evolution of CDISC Standards and Therapeutic Areas’ from Tina Apers at Business & Decision Life.
